New Year = New Ideas

2020 A Vision for the Future


What do YOU want to do
in our Wonderful World of Ceramics?

Designing Technique Workshops or Party Van workshops, or even deciding what to pour for our Open Classes all depends on YOU.

And when we create a workshop, pour the bisque, and paint the samples and then no one shows up

we wonder why???

  • No interest in the project?
  • Too expensive?
  • Busy with other activities?
  • Would really like to see that offered again?

What is your focus?

  • Do you want to learn new things or just paint things that are on the shelf?
  • Are you making pieces for gifts or for yourself?
  • Explore the world of underglazes with Concepts, EZ strokes, and Cover Coats.
  • Add glitters and rub on paste colors to enliven your stained projects.
  • Learn to use overglazes such as gold, white gold, Mother of Pearl, and decals
  • Create with clay? Or learn to cut out wet pieces that are poured?

Think about it and let us know.

FREE LESSON for any referrals — just pick up some business cards, write your name on the back, and the new student gets a free lesson + you get a free lesson. Hand them out to scout groups, church groups, and nursing homes. Tell them about our Party Van.
